Description

Vital Statistics :The Chrysler Building is a famous example of Art Deco architecture. It was also the first man-made structure to stand taller than 1,000 feet (305 meters).

There are two sets of lighting in the top spires and decoration. The first are the V-shaped lighting inserts in the steel of the building itself. Added later were groups of floodlights which are on mast arms directed back at the building. This allows the top of the building to be lit in many colors for special occasions.
